The intention of the database is to compare the Dynamic Compression in recordings. The value applied is an approximation of the average softest to loudest peak.Its not scientific but it works. It gives you a choice to select the version with higher dynamics, if an artist has more that one release of the same album. I have noticed that the new remastered versions or Best of releases often are have more Dynamic Compression than the original release.
